I am so sorry to hear that Uncle Wayne passed away. He loved his Polly so much that it was always heartwarming to be around them. They visited Ron and I in Florida, and had all of us on our hands and knees playing a silly game which resulted in much laughter. A memory we hold dear. We wish his family heartfelt condolences. Since he was larger than life itself, we know the memory of Uncle Wayne will endure in all our hearts.

Wayne was one of my dad's best friends, spent many hours fishing with him in a boat on the manitoulin island. Once Wayne snagged a seagull in his line reels it in and safety untangled the bird to release it. Wayne had hands off steal and the size of my foot and needed them that day to grab ahold of a not very happy seagull. RIP

— Dave Pleadwell, August 12, 2021
